We are both from Mexico and it's our first road trip in the US . Appreciate the help :)

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    That sounds like a nice trip. You've got a lot of options that you could add to your trip. You could consider taking some of old Route 66 across northern Arizona if you want to see some small towns. You could also spend some of your time detouring to see some of the National Parks in southern Utah, or visit places like Joshua Tree or Death Valley while traveling between LA and the Grand Canyon.

    Of course, you didn't actually ask any questions in your post, so is that the kind of thing that you are looking for help with? If so, is there anything other than the Grand Canyon you know you want to see?

    Thanks Mike! Actually I was looking for the prettiest way to go first : from Indio to Gtand Canyon , maybe stoping somewhere in the way, and then the prettiest way to go from the Grand Canyon to LA , Also with a stop on the way. I was thinking o spending more days just in the Grand Canyon so I don't have allot more time. Thanks again !

    Exit 168 off I-10 is Joshua Tree NP. I'd head through there and exit on Utah Trail into 29 Palms. Cross CA-62 and turn right in 2 miles onto Amboy Road. Take that to Amboy and turn right on Old 66, take that to I-40. Get off I-40 at Topock AZ (exit 1) and head north on AZ-95 and Old 66 into Oatman. Go over Sitgreaves Pass and head for Kingman. Leave Kingman on Old 66 through Peach Springs to Seligman, take I-40 to Williams and AZ-64 into the GC. Breaking it up into 2 days, Kingman will have the best lodging choices.

    Leave the GC on AZ-64 east to US-89 into Flagstaff, take Alt-89 through Sedona and Prescott, then AZ-89/AZ-71/US-60 to I-10. Logical overnight would be Blythe.
